35 Number of days in jail (35) Chris Leben was sentenced to after he turned himself over to Oregon authorities for a DUI back in 2005. In 2007 he moved to Hawaii and attempted to get the probation transferred, but it was denied. His appearance on the UFC 85 card in London necessitated a Visa and resolution of the situation in Oregon, so...

 

430 On (4/30) Leben turned himself over in hopes of being able to still fight Michael Bisping in London. The 35 day jail sentence pushed his release date too close to the June 7th event and it is now reported that the fight has been canceled throwing another wrench into UFC 85 plans, as if it needed any more!

 

8 Palace Fighting Championship (8) featured a main event for the lightweight belt. Champ and former UFC fighter Diego Saraiva put his title on the line against Brian Cobb.

 

12 Win number (12) that both Saraiva at 11-6-1 and Cobb at 11-4 were looking for at PFC 8. The two fought to a decision and all the judges gave Brian Cobb the nod 49-46. The twelfth win was a big one for Cobb as it gave him the PFC lightweight belt.

 

43 After only (43) fights and four events the Canadian based Hardcore Championship Fighting closed its doors. The promotion looked promising with the signings of big names like Renato Sobral, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, and David Loiseau among others, but it wasn't meant to be. According to an article at Sherdog.com former partners in the venture Keith Crawford and Dave Houshiar intend to continue as MMA promoters in separate endeavors.
